My son and I visited the Tahoe area for the first time in April 2012 for some Spring skiiing. We wanted to spend our first night on the lake before heading up to Northstar. This hotel couldn't have been better. We stayed one room back from the front suite and had a great view of the lake from inside our room. Room had 2 queen beds and had a great little kitchen, all for a little over a hundred bucks. The staff gave us great information on what to see and where to ski. Nice location, just 20 minutes from Homewood, and less to Squaw, Northstar and Diamond. Perfect place to stay. Cost was 1/3 of Northstar, and looking back I wish we would have just stayed down at the Mourelatos. Will definetly stay again if ever back in the area.
